I'm not allowed to play free money games in my particular state so I guess I have to use a VPN

I've been playing on the pokerstars home games with our usual Thursday night crew and it's working out great. We're doing zoom at the same time and settling up via venmo/zelle/check dropped off under the door mat etc.

You can download and install a separate "play money client" that will allow you to connect to the play money home games area. If you want to PM me I can share a dropbox link, or I think you might be able to get it if you visit pokerstars.NET. It has to be .net, as the .com will force you into the real money download.

The one caveat is that Starts will not allow you to login and play the real money games while also logged into the play money client.

When I originally tried signing up, it said I was geoblocked but provided me with a broken link. Using a VPN is working just fine for now. However, the VPN I'm using only has 1/2 gig to use for free. So... can anybody recommend a good free VPN?

For all players, any tips on staying focused during an online game?
I plan on cleaning off my desk and getting some poker chips that I can riffle.
Ours hasn't gone anywhere. But this is also isn't a very regular game. Some years we might have 4, some years 1 (if that).

I would play. I have a Poker Stars and Poker Stars NJ account and have used the home games feature to play. Worked well. Have Venmo so easy to do the money part.
